When We Find Ourselves Alone

Rodney Whitaker - When We Find Ourselves Alone

The ambiance on When We Find Ourselves Alone is similar to what Whitaker generated on such turn-of-the-century gems as Winter Moon, Ballads and Blues: The Brooklyn Session and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - all recorded for small independent labels - on which the leader drew repertoire from several stylistic tributaries. Now, as then, Whitaker and company address the leader's 5 originals and 6 arrangements with an old-school feel and a 21st century attitude. They follow the time-tested jazz aesthetic, embracing the tradition of navigating the long-standing forms with individualistic tonal personalities, ebullient soulfulness and an unending will to swing.
